    Call RCBS up they will either fix it replace it or might send you a different new one if they now longer make the press

    I think they changed the handle threads in about 1975 or so.

    Gentlemen,

    Your info is very incouraging. I will give them a call on Monday.

    A few weeks ago I was teaching my son-in-law to reload. The handle fell out. After carefullly inspecting it I realized it broke off at the threads. I continued to use it until a couple days ago. With less holding the rod, there was more leverage on the cammer and the rod broke out a chunk; rendering the press useless.
